Don't you worry about a thing, Mr.

Wilkes.

I'll take care of

everything for you.

My pleasure, sir.

And if you need anything else,

I'll be your client

relations rep.

My name's Megan.

You have a wonderful

day yourself.

Bye-bye.

[SIGHING]

Hey, Megan.

Hey, Chloe.

Mr. St. Clair wants to see you.

Really?

That's what his assistant said.

Now?

I'm a mess.

I think now would be good.

Megan...

you look amazing.

Thank you.

She's right, you know.

You do look amazing.

Philip.

Hi!

What are you doing here?

I had a deposition

in the building

across the street.

Oh...

Carly, I could use some coffee.

Sure.

Thanks, Chloe.

So... good surprise?

Uh, of course, yeah.

But right now I have to go.

Mr. St. Clair wants to see me.

Do you think that's

a good thing?

Why wouldn't it be?

You are the queen of

customer relations.

Client relations.

Right.

I was actually hoping

we could talk.

Talk?

Yeah. About us?

The where-are-we-going

conversation.

Part... five.

Yes, of course we can talk,

but right now, I

really have to go.

Um, what about dinner?

What about Chameleons at 7:00?

Perfect. Wish me luck.

Luck.

[KNOCKING] Mr. St. Clair?

Ms. Quinn, come in.

How can I help you?

Please, have a seat.

I have heard nothing

but good things

about your performance

in Client Relations.

Thank you.

That's why I wanted to see you.

I've read your resume,

and I see you've studied

architecture at Duke.

Yes, I've wanted

to design things

ever since I was a little girl.

Hmm, and yet you're still

in client relations.

Well, I'm just waiting

on my door to open.

Why don't we see if we

can kick that door down?

I don't follow.

Well, due to a

scheduling change,

the Sapphire Lake project is

now slated to break ground

in less than 30 days.

Sapphire Lake?

Oh, yes, of course, you

wouldn't know about it.

We are getting ready to build

a new retail development

at Sapphire Lake.

However, I find

myself in a dilemma,

thanks to a

60-something-year-old woman

who refuses to sell

us her property,

land that is

smack-dab in the center

of our new development.

Now, I need someone with

people skills, Ms. Quinn,

and that's where you come in.

My assistant has mentioned to me

that you grew up

near Sapphire Lake?

Yes. I've spent a

lot of time there.

It's one of my favorite places.

Good. Come with me.

Watch this.

[VIDEO]:
Welcome

to Sapphire Lake,

Stoneland Properties' newest

luxury housing and retail space,

relaxing small-town living

meets the convenience...

[MAN'S VOICE]:
I sure hope Mrs.

Figgins

never cuts down our tree.

Maybe you should

check the knothole.

If I do, will you

stop acting so weird?

Maybe.

[CHUCKLES]

Hey, you know I kept

all those notes and letters

you sent me, right?

Megan, wait.

Joe, do you want me to check

in the knothole or not?

Yes.

But first...

Megan,

we've known each other

our whole lives,

from preschool to high

school graduation,

but I don't want to

talk about the past.

I want to talk about the future.

[VOICE ECHOES] The future.

[VIDEO]:
...making

waking up tomorrow

better today.

Voil!

Wow.

I hardly recognize it.

Impressive, isn't it?

Yes, it is.

Stick with me on this, Quinn.

Mr. St. Clair,

I'm not certain Sapphire

Lake is the best place

for a development like that.

Well, according to our

market research, it is.

However this woman,

Frances Figgins,

is holding up the whole project.

We need her parcel of land,

and she refuses to sell.

She's really the last

obstacle in our way,

and despite my best efforts

to reason with her,

she has now hung up on me...

now, let me think... six times?

Seven times, sir.

Seven times.

I'm not sure if you've

been to Sapphire Lake,

but it really is

a very tranquil and, and...

Let me stop you right there, Ms.

Quinn.

Would you like to get

out of client relations

and one day design

a Stoneland Properties

development?

Of course.

Then you need to learn

that sentimentality and

business don't mix.

Now, Sapphire Lake

is going to be

our biggest development to date,

and our CEO wants to make sure

that everything goes smoothly.

The very future of this division

depends on it.

Now, it's been brought

to my attention

that you are quite

a people person,

which is why I think

you're the best person

to help us close this deal.

So, are you in?

I'm in.

Good. I'm counting on you.

Is my car ready?

Waiting for you, sir.

Wonderful.

Now, you have to get Mrs.

Figgins to agree to sell

before we're forced to pay

the contractors a penalty.

If that happens,

the board of directors

will pull the plug,

and let me assure you, Ms.

Quinn,

that will not be a good thing.

Not for any of us.

Now, you've got till Monday

at 10:
00 a.m.

to close the deal.

You do that, and I'll

personally see to it

that you get a shot

at your dream.

I'm sorry,

did you say, uh, Monday morning?

As in four days from now?

That's right.

We're all counting on you.

Don't let us down.

[]

So, I guess you haven't seen it?

Seen what?

The latest edition

of Chicago Attorney.

[CHUCKLES]

No, I haven't.

I dog-eared the page.

"Meet Chicago's

ten fastest rising

legal stars..."

"Number seven...

Philip Allen Carter."

Wow, Philip,

this is amazing.

I love that they

used my full name.

Wow, I am so proud of you.

Thank you.

I actually had someone

recognize me at lunch today.

It was... surreal.

I knew all your hard work and

long hours would pay off.

Well, you know, I figured

it's not just good for me,

it's good for us.

[SNAPPING FINGERS]

Wine list?

Good for us?

Yeah.

Now that my career's taking off,

I was hoping we could

talk about our future.

Oh, okay.

Um... you know, Philip,

I'm just really focused

on this Sapphire

Lake thing for work.

Maybe we could wait...

Megan...

We've been waiting.

We've been dating, what,

nine months?

I haven't met your family yet.

Why haven't you invited

me home to Cedarville?

Vale.

It's Cedarvale.

We've been working so much,

both of us.

Is it that,

or is that you're just

not sure about me?

No, it is... it's not you.

I just, I just need...

"A little more time."

Right?

That's what you say every

time I bring this up.

Megan...

I'm a catch.

I know you are.

[CELL PHONE RINGS]

Oh.

It's the Cedarvale Hospital.

I need to take this.

Sure.

Megan Quinn.

Hello, Dr. Baker.

Is everything okay?

Oh.

Okay.

Thanks for calling.

Uh, yes.

I can be there first

thing in the morning.

Goodbye, Dr. Baker.

What is it?

My dad fell off a ladder

and fractured his foot.

He's spending the night

in the hospital.

Well, doesn't sound too serious.

Right?

I can't miss my flight

if I'm going to see my dad

before I meet with Mrs. Figgins.

So...

where does that leave us?

I promise

I'm going to think

everything over.

Fine.

But remember,

the number seven fastest

rising legal star

in Chicago

is not gonna be on

the market for long.

I'll think fast.

I'll call you.

Have a safe trip.
